Changes In Monitor System Effective
This year has brought several effective changes. First of all,
the monitor staff has been increased, including juniors for the
first time. With this increase, the monitors have been able to
handle new responsibilities as pass checkers as well as their
regular duties in the cafeteria. They, and advisors Miss
Magistri and Miss Brewer, are to be commended for handling a
difficult job well.

and knee socks, and used green and white
shakers for effect. The highlight of the season
came at the Alumni Basketball game in
December when Santa arrived just in time to
take a short ride on his sleigh pulled by
Rudolph and his eight reindeer (Drill Team in
disguise.) Many thanks to Miss Fey, her new
assistant, Mrs. Sager, and the team for
entertaining all during half time at football
and basketball games.

Under the direction of its new coach, Mrs. Gombar,
the Field Hockey team finished with another winning
season. The team was the largest it has ever been and
had more than half of last year's starters returning. So
with numbers and experience in their favor, they played
six rigorous games, losing only to East Longmeadow.
The girls challenged them to another game, but
regretfully never had the opportunity to play it.
However, they proved themselves at the Hampshire
County Girl's High School Play Day on Saturday,
October 19. The team spent the day at U. Mass.,
receiving pointers on strategy and techniques of the
game, and playing a series of games in the afternoon.

them. They were a spirited team, improving
greatly as the season progressed and who, along
with their new coach, Mrs. Bolduc, acquired
much valuable experience. The girls anticipate a
victorious season next year when all will return to
make use of the previous year's efforts.

There were several additions and changes to this
year's gymnastics team, but the girls still maintained
their reputation for being a tough team to beat. With
one less event (no trampoline this year) and new rules
stressing amplitude and originality, the girls had to
work extra hard to qualify for the state meet. They
practiced whenever, (would you believe ten o'clock
Saturday morning and during vacations?) and
wherever (would you believe the corrective room and
halls?) they coula find time and space. But with the
experienced coaching of Miss Cascio and Mrs. Gombar
and the good luck cnarms of the "vulches", the girls
pulled through with a very successful season.

It was quite a year for the Minnechaug
varsity soccer squad, fighting to a 7-5-2
record for fourth place in the rugged
Pioneer Valley Soccer League. When
they combined their own determination
with the skills developed through long
hours of practice, Coach Whalen's booters
were almot unbeatable. This is supported
by their beating first place finisher
Chicopee 2-0. As any of the spectators at
the Ludlow game can testify, the game
sometimes changes quickly. With only
five minutes left, Ludlow scored three
goals to win 3-2, a loss that hurt deeply,
because it shattered our hopes to make
the W. Mass. Soccer Tournament. There is
always next year, however, and with the
return of Bruce Fuller (9 goals) and many
other underclassmen, there are strong
hopes of making the tournament in the
fall of 1969.

Minnechaug Harriers Outdistance Opponents, Winning Nine
Cross country is a sport that often goes
unnoticed, but at Minnechaug it has proven to be
one of the most successful teams. Under the
direction of coaches Donald Bamford and Jack
Logan, the harriers posted a 9-4 record with the
greatest degree of success coming at the
conclusion of the season when they compiled six
consecutive victories. Senior co-captains, Bill
Carpenter and Doug Flint, along with Dennis
Keefe and Jeff Coffin were the men who most
often paced the distance runners. A standout
performance was turned in by Bill Carpenter at
the Western Mass. Cross Country meet where he
placed ninth in a tremendously large field. A
pleasant surprise was freshman Jim Durfee who
earned his varsity letter. Many returning
lettermen should provide this outstanding sport at
Minnechaug with many good years to come.

Minnechaug exposed a ' "New Breed" of
gridsters this year. The Falcons continued the use
of the platoon system, innovated a flea-flicker play
into their game plan, and introduced many new
faces, including freshman Steve Spinn. The Falcons
were piloted by Super Bowl Joe Twining, who left
his mark on opposing defensive secondaries. Joe
continuously hit ends Kevin Sullivan, Mike Lynch,
and Boger O'Donnell as all three were able to get
free and snatch passes with great regularity. The
passing of Twining would never have come about
were it not for the fine protection of the front
wall consisting of Leo Spear, Alden Luzi, Ken

Western Massachusetts Gymnastics League with
an 8-1 record. Their only loss came from an
overpowering Tech team. Excellent performances

Coach Morgan, and Coach Rainey. With the loss
of such outstanding seniors as Jeff Norris, Lance
Trevallion, Barry Musselman, and Glen Benoit,
next year's victories will depend on the efforts of a
group of juniors, including Russ Brooks, Cliff
Keeny, and Roger Pelletier; and the hard work of
the freshmen and sophomores, too.

Leader's Corps Benefits School
Jeff Coffin assists Mr. Morgan with a pool class. This is just one of the many
services of the Boy's Leaders Corps. Composed of junior and senior boys that
have demonstrated leadership in their first two years at Minnechaug, the
Leader's Corps not only assists physical education classes but also serves as
ushers at all home athletic contests.
The past four years have been vastly different for all of us. Many
things have happened, both for the good and for the bad. Yet, each of
us, in our own particular way, has become involved in life here and it in
us. They have been growing years, each of us fulfilling responsibilities
accepting and rejecting new ideas, and most important, understanding
our classmates and the reasons for their own special involvements.

We would like to offer the last page of the 1969
FALCON as a tribute to a remarkable woman whose
involvement in the FALCON, her teaching, and her
students, brought her the respect and admiration of
hundreds of students over her past five years at
Minnechaug. Many of us came to know her as someone
more than a teacher; we will always remember her as a
friend. Mrs. Jean O'Neil is a giving person, a generous
person. She has never hesitated to give of herself to those
who need her. When she left Minnechaug in January, the
school lost a quality that cannot easily be replaced — true
concern. Best wishes to you, Mrs. O., and all our thanks.

Tenerowitz, Gibson and McNulty had a rough time with
the competition this year. The team lost a number of
matches by just one stroke, including one to second place
finisher South Hadley, in finishing with a 7-10 record.
Team honors went to: senior Stan Tenerowitz with the
best average (81), sophomore Mark Gibson with the best
score (a two over par 72), and junior Tom McNulty with
the most points scored (30, a new school record). Dennis
Meehan, Howie Gilson, Bruce Bartley and Gary Markhart
were among the other team members who figured decisively
in many of the matches during the season.

The 1968 tennis season couldn't have been termed a
success by many standards; and nobody likes to remem-
ber losing. Well, the 1969 squad decided that the best
way to bury the past would be to go out and win.
That's exactly what they did. The 69'ers played high
caliber, exciting tennis. The competition in the Pioneer
Valley Tennis League was tough; the matches were
close, but the Minnechaug netmen prevailed for third
place and a 15-5 record overall.
'Chaug Tears Up
Adjectives describing the performance
of the 1969 baseball team can be found in
abundance in Roget's Thesaurus under
"goodness." "Dandy, swell, rum, keen,
bully, crackajack, great, grand, admirable,
estimable, etc." pretty well sum up a
second place Valley Wheel finish and a
13-6 record overall. Pitching aces Barry
(Ray Culp) Mussleman and Jim (Lonborg)
DeSanti anchored the mound staff, and
the slugging was handled by such notables
as Pete (Yaz) Skryniarz, Rich (Reggie
Smith) Rene, Barry (Russ Gibson) Morgan
and Mike (Dalton Jones) Lynch. George
(Mike) McMillan could have given some
pointers to his struggling namesake,
George Scott. With eleven varsity members
returning, and with some help from the
J.V. graduates, next year Minnechaug could
be "No. 1."

Through the combined efforts of both Mrs. Gombar and
the girls, the softball team ended up with a very successful
undefeated season. The highlight came when they defeated
their rivals, Monson, by a score of 17-3 in the first game
(coincidentally, Monson beat Minnechaug by the same
score last year). With this and the following winning
games the softball team ended the girls' '69 season on a
Really now, could anyone have imag-
ined a mediocre track team at Minne-
chaug? Of course not! The '69 team fared
only slightly better than their average

before the onslaught of hurdlers, sprinters,
vaulters, and muscle men in green and
white were: Tantasqua, East Longmeadow
and Pittsfield. With the loss of many Se-
